Professional Driver (Former Employee) – Arlington, VA – February 2, 2016
Beta delivery service that has not been around too long in VA, but appears to have taken off and done pretty well. I enjoyed setting my own hours. I also liked some of the neighborhoods the deliveries took me to.
ery Driver Specialist (Current Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – August 10, 2018
I like working with Deliv. I plan on keeping it as my side job. I worked in Brooklyn which is where I live. The staff is friendly and helpful. I spend most of my day driving and alone which doesn't bother me. During the rush hours traffic can get hectic but other than that I like the job.
Pick my own schedule, work in my bourough
no hours available to work, not being paid while waiting for my tasks after I completed my previous delieveries
Independent Contractor (Driver) (Current Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – July 28, 2018
Initially when I started with Deliv things were fine, more than enough hours to choose from during the week (20) with the possibility of getting more based on your availability. I went from working at least 20-30 hours/week to 0 in a weeks worth of time!!
I began in March 2018 & things were consistent, steady, & busy. A great source for reliable extra income. Now in July, it’s TERRIBLE!!!
As of right now drivers can only select to work up to 12 hours/week...& that’s if you’re fortunate to get hours! Their scheduling system is terrible to say the least. Drivers are required to select their hours every week at the same time so when there’s few hours to choose from & too many drivers it makes for a disaster. When I reached out to dispatch to ask about the lack of available hours (multiple times via email) someone FINALLY responded & said some corporate BS that “it’s a contract job & the hours are available based off the availability” & blah blah blah.
Come to find out, they lost a HUGE contract & that’s why the hours have dwindled. No communication on their part or anything, I found out because I reached out to the store.
The dispatchers...that’s another story! They may or may not contact you during your shift. They are rude. They do not know how to correctly route & will have you all over the city vs keeping you in one area, which makes more sense. And don’t complain about it, they’ll start to target you & purposely give you terrible routes. The company is more invested in their dispatchers (employees) vs drivers (independent contractors), so much so that it’s amore... reminder in emails to be nice to the dispatchers. O & btw, the dispatchers are based out of Atlanta which is of no help to me in Pittsburgh!!! Idk how they can properly route when they aren’t familiar with the area or able to take detours or construction into account.
Overall, it had potential but I feel like the loss of the contract, poor communication skills, as well as lack of hours to choose from make this a waste of time!less
Work/life balance, able to choose how often you want to work
Poor communication, app crashes, lack of work, RUDE dispatchers
Delivery Driver (Former Employee) – Bay Area, CA – June 18, 2018
This is a shady company with very poor communication, and a buggy app that will greatly impact your performance. There was no support from the office. Often, especially near holiday season, it was completely normal that you would go to a store for a pick up and the order will be wrong and/or not yet fulfilled. This requires you reach out to dispatch so that they can remedy the issue and get you into the next order. Then you will proceed to wait for a response for up to an hour, if you hear from them at all. This is an incredible waste of time of the drivers and shows a sincere lack of care or empathy for them or their time, you don’t get paid for waiting around. Anyways, my advice, save yourself the pain And misery and just get a regular hourly job, I ended up doing that and everting is going a lot better. Save this “opportunity” for some other poor sucker.
Pick you own work hours (even though those hours are often spent waiting around stores with no pay)
Very poor communication, cut throat culture, buggy application, pay often doesn’t work out well due to long waiting
Driver (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – June 14, 2018
The manufacturers that they interact with are not always courteous and sometimes are downright disrespectful and disregard the fact that we're working with that business or department store or whatever and the delivery management needs to solidify their agreement and understanding of how we pick up deliveries from certain locations
not difficult work but the management could use great improvement
Community Success Representative/Scheduling Lead (Current Employee) – Menlo Park, CA – June 7, 2018
not difficult work but the management could use great improvement. Middle management is good in the analysis of the business and numbers but could improve on managing people and showing value to the staff.
work from home on weekends, catered lunch on Wednesdays, free drinks and snacks
small staff for a lot of work, leadership from mid management is lacking
Handing customer service calls (Former Employee) – Roswell, GA – May 14, 2018
Worked states from the south, mid and east coast and west coast. I got to interact with drivers all over the country. The hardest part of the job was making sure that the drivers got to their destination.
Courier Driver (Current Employee) – New York, NY – January 30, 2018
Great for a temporary job that is flexible towards whatever kind of schedule you have. No benefits. They don't take off taxes in your paycheck so you will have to pay back a huge amount during tax season.
I've been with Deliv since 2014. I enjoy being able to choose my hours and drive from different commercial locations delivering packages. I met interesting people and got very familiar with the city and metro area. I wish the company would give more hours as they only allow you to work an average of 16 to 18 hours a week. This group of serial Silicon Valley entrepreneurs needs to familiarize itself with the city of Houston and its traffic challenges because there was lots of wasted time and energy that was unnecessary. You commit to certain amount of hours and they push you to go passed your committed hours. When you have other responsibilities and can't continue passed the hours you singed up for, they retaliate against you. During the holidays. they will push you to go all day late into the night and if you don't, they get your hours taken away.
Flexible hours with independent culture
Not enough hours and many communication issues with accounts
Delivery Driver (Current Employee) – New York, NY – December 30, 2017
Working at deliv is a real relaxing job. You're basically your own boss but a lot of work is being giving to you but you are to yourself. Warning most of the time the bags are heavy around 50 pounds maybe thats the max other then job no negatives about the job.
Delivery Driver (Current Employee) – Brooklyn/Queens NY – November 13, 2017
I just started this last week and I only got about 5-6 hours for one day throughout that week . This week I only got about 16-18 hours of delivery which isn’t too bad . My only wish is to get a solid 30-40 hours a week instead of being on waitlist or being capped to take available hours since I’ve already hit my limit for the week . This company is really smooth and I’m hoping to work full time with them as a deliv driver. Traffic is horrible between queens and Brooklyn sometimes but I can’t complain . I get about 1-2 delivers where customers don’t pick up so I have to return to the retailer which is an hassle sometimes because it takes more time and parking is really terrible at some places . So beware of parking !
Great pay, good customer service, be your own boss when it comes to scheduling
Deliv is a wonderful company to work with. You post hours that you are willing to work and you drive your own vehicle at a very generous mileage compensation plus an hourly rate... The work is very easy for the pay, and support staff are AWESOME and will help out whenever you run into some problems making a delivery.
Bosses working up at the 'GOD'S Eye' can track your progress, but usually only contact you if special order/instructions are needed for your current or upcoming task.
The job pays very good and the hours are ridiculously flexible, but you must take "note" you are NOT an employee of Deliv in the traditional sense as a driver. You are an Independent Contractor which means your hours are yours to make, but you will not receive any benefits whatsoever or any other perks you might expect...
You will need to set aside money for "TAXES" keep records of gas you spend making delivers and/or the miles....
Hours and the pay is good for the work
Next to no benefits/Independent Contractor for Deliv
